Editorial: Recent Advances in Wireless Internet


Novel IT industry evolution improves people’s life and brings economic benefits using innovative technologies of the Internet of Things (IoT), edge/fog computing, cloud computing, social networks, vehicular ad hoc networks, AI, and big data. Due to amount of heterogeneous wireless and IoT devices deployed in open environment, and intensive data stream generation, the research issues on wireless network and Internet technology for development in various industries and smart city have many challenges need to overcome.

The goal of this special issue is to publish both state-of-the-art and prospective papers that present advances towards the performance enhancement of wireless networks and Internet technology in various industries and smart city which were selected from the 11th EAI International Wireless Internet Conference (WiCON 2018). After the event, an open call was published to encourage the contributions presented at WiCON 2018 to be extended and submitted to this special issue. Each paper was carefully evaluated by at least three reviewers. This careful evaluation process has allowed us to select 6 high quality research papers. We strongly believe that the selected papers will make a significant contribution to this field. We present a brief overview of each manuscript in the following.

In the paper entitled “The Implementation of a Cloud-Edge Computing Architecture Using OpenStack and Kubernetes for Air Quality Monitoring Application” authored by Endah Kristiani, et al., deploys a complete set of cloud-edge computing architectures, and evaluates the high-performance computing systems, clusters, and networks using Ganglia Monitoring System.

The second paper, “Co-tier Uplink Power Control in Small Cell Networks by Stackelberg Game with Two-Way Pricing Mechanism”, authored by Chih-Cheng Tseng, et al., proposes a co-tier power control scheme, which enables SBSs to bargain for their compromised uplink transmit power under the premise that the maximum tolerable interference bound is not violated. And the optimum uplink transmit power is derived through mathematic analyses.

The third paper, “A coverage vulnerability repair algorithm based on clustering in underwater wireless sensor networks” by Wenbo Zhang, et al., proposes a vulnerability repair algorithm based on clustering. In the algorithm, the temporary control node determines whether the vulnerability is worth repairing.

The fourth paper, “MAC Technology of IEEE 802.11ax: Progress and Tutorial”, by Mao Yang, et al., introduces the latest MAC layer progress of WLAN standards (IEEE 802.11ax), and discusses the key technologies of MAC technologies of IEEE 802.11ax in details.

The fifth paper, “Robust Network Intrusion Detection Scheme Using Long-Short Term Memory Based Convolutional Neural Networks”, by Chia-Ming Hsu, et al., proposes a deep learning model to enhance the performance of the intrusion detection system, and compares the proposed method with existing works.

The last article titled “Vechicular Edge Computing and Networking: A Survey”, authored by Lei Liu, et al., presents a comprehensive survey on the existing work in Vehicular Edge Computing.
